VGM Regulation

Effective July 1, 2016, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) will enforce globally the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention requirements regarding the verification of the gross weight of packed containers. All loaded containers are required to have a Verified Gross Mass (VGM) declared by shippers.

Yang Ming has been working on enhancements to our systems to facilitate the transmission of VGM data, our goal is to ensure your cargo flow will not be disrupted by the implementation of the new regulations. VGM Submission Form via Email/Fax
